UK and CA Domain Names Have Just Been Made Available
We are pleased to inform you that today we have made available for registration through the Web Hosting Control Panel the .UK and .CA domain extensions (top-level-domains or TLDs). We know how desired they are and hope that these extensions will satisfy the needs of our clients from the United Kingdom and Canada.
Let's present the new TLDs and have a look at their special requirements now.
.UK (.CO.UK and .ORG.UK) Domain Names.
The .UK TLD stands for the United Kingdom. We've made available the .CO.UK and .ORG.UK SLDs (second-level-domains), which can be used for registration or transfer purposes. The domain names registered with these SLDs possess some special features that make their management different from that of .com, .net, etc. TLDs. The differences concern the registration period, the renewal policy and the WHOIS info management.
Registration period: The registration period for the .UK domains is 2 years. Renewal policy: Domain renewals are possible for a 2-year period only. What's more, renewal is only possible in cases when 5 months, or less, are left until the expiration date.
WHOIS management: Modification of the WHOIS info is not possible through the Control Panel. The UK registry Nominet must be contacted directly by the domain owner when the WHOIS info must be changed. The reason for this restriction is that there are certain fees that must be paid to Nominet and that such changes are considered as formal transfer.FROM
